Neuroscience Day 2023

This year’s focus of the Neuroscience Day will be Natural and Artificial Intelligence – To Better Understand and Treat Brain Diseases.

The Lundbeck Foundation Brain Prize Lecture will be held by Dr. Ole Kiehn, Brain Prize Winner 2022

Dr. Kiehn received the award for his studies on neuronal cell types and circuits underlying movement. The key findings from his work have identified major elements of spinal circuitries which are crucial for generating changes in coordination & timing of locomotion. His lab is also responsible for precisely outlining the diversification of brainstem circuits involved in episodic expression or context-dependent selection of locomotor behaviour. This ground-breaking research helps in the development of treatments for spinal cord injuries, ALS & Parkinson’s disease.

Invited keynote speaker:

  • Dr. Ole Kiehn Professor,  University of Copenhagen and Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, 2022 Brain Prize Winner
  • Dan Yamins Assistant professor Psychology and Computer Science, NeuroAILab Stanford University 

Invited speakers:

  • Per Bækgaard Associate Professor, PhD, MSc EE, Head of Study, Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, DTU,
  • Jakob Christensen  Clinical Professor, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University and Dept. og Neurology, AUH
  • Ditte Demontis Professor, Institute of Biomedicin, Aarhus University
